GE to support F110, F101, F108 engines
GE Aviation has won a five-year contract from the US Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) for the support of F110, F101 and F118 engines, the company announced on 3 February.
This marks the first performance-based logistics contract won by GE Aviation, and it is worth over $330 million. The F-series contract covers consumable parts needs worldwide and at the Tinker air force depot in Oklahoma City.
Under this contract, GE Aviation will provide improved availability of engine parts to the air force and reduce the inventory of the DLA. The company has already stationed key support personnel at the Tinker depot to start contract operations.
The air force selected GE's F110 engine in 1984, and since then it has ordered over 3,100 units worldwide, making the F110 the best-selling engine used in the Lockheed Martin F-16C/D aircraft. The F110 engine is also used in aircraft used by 11 international air forces.
